Storm Track Intimidation: A Week in the Life of the Islamist Intimidators

I'm posting this for WC of The Gathering Storm:

It’s been quite a week last week for the jihadists and their intimidation tactics on the non-Muslim world. But there is some light at the end of the tunnel.

We all know of the Muslim women who refused to remove her veil at the request of car rental company.

Now she is demanding another hearing.

HAMTRAMCK, Michigan (AP) - A Muslim woman who lost her small-claims case against a car rental company after she refused to remove her veil while testifying has been granted a new hearing. The decision came after Ginnnah Muhammad of Detroit wore a scarf and veil that covers her head and face, leaving only the eyes visible, during a court hearing.

Muhammad wanted to contest a rental car company's charge to repair a vehicle she said had been broken into by thieves. The judge told her he needed to see her face to determine her truthfulness, and gave her a choice: remove the covering while testifying or have the case dismissed. She kept it on, and the judge ordered her to pay the rental car company. Muhammad successfully argued that she shouldn't have been forced to choose between her religious beliefs and her case and has been granted a new hearing next month.

Here are others. A very busy week for Islamists.

Read the rest at The Gathering Storm.

Are you sure she is getting a re-hearing? According to Debbie Schlussel, the hearing is actually to do with a separate case Ginnnah (yes, three n's) is involved in:

Which reminds me, I'm starting to see a lot of grumbling about pressure from Blogger to adopt the new version. How serious is this?

I don't know. It's only happened to WC so far. I hope it doesn't start to happen to more of us because it's really gonna cause a lot of problems, I think.
